YouTube cuts off Sansad TV after scamsters’ hit | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The YouTube channel of Sansad TV, which broadcasts live proceedings of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha when the Parliament is in session, was “terminated” by the social media platform for “violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines” after it was “compromised” by “scamsters” on Tuesday.
Sansad TV said, “YouTube channel of Sansad TV got compromised due to unauthorised activities by some scamsters on February 15 (Tuesday 1am), including live streaming on this channel. ” Sansad TV said the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team, the nodal agency for responding to cyber security incidents, also reported the incident. The hackers, the statement said, changed the channel’s name to ‘Ethereum’, after the eponymous cryptocurrency. Lok Sabha secretariat, which runs Sansad TV, took up the matter with Google, which owns YouTube.
YouTube, it added, started “fixing the security threats permanently” and the channel on the platform “shall be restored ASAP”.
